Framed & Festive with Beautiful Boughs Dies for #fms562

 Hello and thanks for visiting!

Well, I'll start off by saying I'm not sure my card qualifies for Kim's fun sketch over @Freshly Made Sketches #562.  All I can say is when I saw the sketch, these dies popped into my head, but with a landscape orientation.  Now I think to follow the sketch properly in landscape orientation, there should be 2 bands at the bottom and one on the right side, but like I said I saw it this way in my head.  So I'm still going to post it, and maybe it will inspire someone!   :) 

The retired Beautiful Boughs Dies, #150661 are a fave of mine, however the current Christmas Pinecone Dies, #156309 or Decorated Pine Dies, #159710 would work beautifully!

***  The Trix ***

* Cut the Soft Succulent 3/8 Open Weave Ribbon, #155780 in half lengthwise to create two thin strips, gently adhere with a glue dot at the top of the card leaving the strips floating down.  Adhere a third tiny strip in the top corner with a glue dot and a 2nd glue dot rolled up and hidden under the ribbon near the opposite end.

*  Layer the Soft Succulent & Pear Pizzazz boughs together with glue, then adhere to the card base.  

*  Add a bit of White Craft ink to the top layer of the Early Espresso pinecones.  Adhere one pinecone, adhere the Linen Thread on the sentiment strip with a glue dot, then add the second pinecone with a dimensional. 

*  Create the tag with the Framed & Festive Stamp Set, #160888, pierce with the Take Your Pick™ #144107  & loop a piece of Linen Thread, #104199 through.
